And the 49-year-old confesses Madonna has been her idol for the last three decades. She says, "I've just been kind of up on Madonna these days. I'm loving her.

Another news of Jane Lynch is that she recently revealed she made a duet with Olivia Newton-John, who made her guest appearance in the TV series.

The 'Glee' Summer Tour, Coming To A City Near You

Great news gleeks! Or perhaps I should say, great news gleeks who live in Orlando, New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, or Portland. The first cities of the the Glee Summer Tour were leaked this morning (by gleefan.com) and if you live in or near those seven cities, your favorite musical misfits will be singing in your town. These are just the first cities that have been announced, so keep your fingers crossed (and start planning a road trip just to be safe) if your hometown isn't listed. Unfortunately, your favorite musical misfits and the Glee Summer Tour, will not include New Directions musical director Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison). As we previously reported, Morrison will be spending his time away from McKinley High this summer to record his debut solo album. The Glee Summer Tour will be sponsored by Ticketmaster and Live Nation and reportedly a ticket to the tour will put you back 30-50$ (plus Ticketmaster fees). A small price to pay to see your favorite song from Glee performed live before your very eyes. Glee wraps up filming for the back nine of season 1 sometime in June, so Rachel, Finn, Quinn, and Kurt will most likely be coming to town some time in July or August. Which Glee song or star are you most looking forward to seeing on tour? Source Here

Interview: Stephen Tobolowsky talks Sandy Ryerson, song choices, and Glee's open casting call

(Cross-posted from my Glee blog, Gleeks United : head on over there for all your Glee-related news, gossip, and recaps!) Stephen Tobolowsky has been in everything. Okay, almost everything. Just the other day on Twitter when a fan remarked that she kept seeing him in every movie that came on TV and asked where Stephen didn't have a role, the comedic star simply replied: "I was not in Sister Act 2." Over the course of his Hollywood career, however, Stephen has racked up over 200 film and television credits, including such well-defined characters as Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day, to Sammy Jankins in Memento, to, of course, Sandy Ryerson in Glee. The gracious star (who frequently chats with fans on Twitter) took the time to answer a few questions via e-mail about Sandy, his fellow Glee cast members, and more. Part of our Q&A is below, but if you want to read my entire interview with Stephen (in which he also discusses what guest stars he'd like to see on Glee and what's it like to work with such a large ensemble cast), you're going to have to wait until September! The full interview will be published in my upcoming companion guide book Don't Stop Believin': The Unofficial Guide to Glee which will be in stores this fall. Gleeks United: Tell us more about how you see the character of Sandy Ryerson, beyond what we might see on screen. Stephen Tobolowsky: Any role I work on can be framed by two main questions: What is my character's greatest hope and what is his greatest fear. All behavior is to some degree influenced by these two things. For Sandy, his greatest hope was encapsulated in a line he had in the "Acafellas" episode: "This is my shot of getting back to the world of the normal." The line was cut in editing but the truth remains: Sandy is pained by feeling like he lives in the outskirts of acceptability. It is a lonely place - or as he says in "Preggers": "I'm living in a cocoon of horror!" So loneliness and being ostracized is what Sandy fears most. From what we've seen so far on Glee, Sandy is probably gay, seemingly a pedophile, a lover of Josh Groban, and a writer of Desperate Housewives fan fiction. How do you as an actor relate to a character like Sandy? Are there any hidden similarities between the two of you? It's interesting that one of the lines that was cut from the pilot was Sandy pleading with Principal Figgins that he doesn't understand what all the accusations are about because he's "not gay!" Let's take Sandy at his word - he is not gay or a pedophile. Does it make the material funnier or the situation richer? I say, "yes." It makes Sandy not a borderline criminal who is lying to cover his tracks - but like all of us - he is someone who is out of touch with who he is or how he is perceived. That is more universal - and funnier - and yes I plead guilty to that one! Will we be seeing more of Sandy in the second half of season 1? Have you heard any word on any potential storylines Sandy might play a part in? We sure hope that we haven't seen the end of him! I have heard that I am coming back but I don't know the circumstances or the story lines. These things always change so I have my fingers crossed. I love the show and Sandy so I hope there is more outrageousness to come! If Sandy were to sing a song to express his emotions, what would he sing? How about "Stoned in Love with You" (by the Stylistics) sung to Josh Groban or "Put on a Happy Face" (from the musical Bye Bye Birdie) sung with Sue! FOX recently announced that they will be holding an open casting call for three new characters in the second season of Glee. What do you think of this method of finding new blood for the show, and do you have any advice for hopeful fans wishing to be the newest students of McKinley High? I think it is very clever. It will get a lot of attention and press. I think newbies better be able to sing with the best in the world, dance, be tireless, and have a good attitude about it - other than that it's a piece of cake. Thanks again for chatting with us, Stephen! We sincerely hope to see you on Glee again soon!

Next on 'Glee': Jennifer Lopez, Finale Showdown, Kurt's Boyfriend and More

There were a lot of information regarding "Glee" being released at 2010 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 17. Backstage, creator Ryan Murphy said they are trying to reach out to Jennifer Lopez to make an appearance, and later during the press conference held after the ceremony, he said there will be showdown in the season finale. About the guest starring appearance of Lopez, Murphy said, "I have a meeting with Jennifer Lopez in a couple weeks. She wants to come on. We want her to be a cafeteria lady." Meanwhile, Ryan revealed the sectionals will see the "Glee" club competing with Vocal Adrenaline whose awesome performance they have seen in the pilot. The show will only be back on April 13 and they are still shooting the episode where Madonna's catalog will be used fully. "We are shooting right now a Madonna episode, a tribute to Madonna," Murphy said. "She may or may not be in the show. We are doing a great number with Jane Lynch and Olivia Newton-John. They are going to do 'Physical'." Beside announcing that Rachel-Puck relationship will be revived because audience responded well to it, Murphy said openly-gay Kurt will get a lover. "We just announced we're doing a nationwide search for the season 2 cast, and [Kurt's boyfriend is] one of the three roles that we're adding," he said. "And we're going to make them a power couple. We're not going to do the whole hiding in the shadows thing. We're going to make them popular, and out and proud and glamorous. Like prom king and king. We're doing the opposite of what's been done." Murphy added, "We're also casting sort of a Eve Harrington [from 'All About Eve'] to kind of steal Rachel's thunder a little. So those are two of the three." Another point being shared during the press conference was that they will take away the baby fever which was a large subject in the first 13 episodes and focus only on Quinn's delivery in the back 9 episodes.
